    Summary

    [COMPLETED - 01/05/18]

    It’s 2007 and Oliver’s short visit to B. is over. Elio doesn’t expect to hear from him again - at least not for another few years, where their lives might once more cross paths, though barely touch.

    But a week later, an email arrives in Elio’s inbox that gives a glimmer of hope that something has been stirred inside of Oliver. Their correspondence continues briefly, and eventually leads the old lovers back to Rome.

    It is here that the pair learn of all that they have missed; the struggles and the heartache of a life apart.

    Can they reconcile a relationship so battered by the effects of time and distance and longing? Or will Rome end how Rome always ends? With a "later!" that really means "goodbye."

    Summary

    In Aciman's book, Oliver visits Elio at Christmas and announces his engagement. He also treats Elio like a stranger, refusing to touch him or even be friendly. Aciman's Elio allegedly forgives Oliver, but what if he hadn't?
    Fast forward two years: Elio is in London studying Composition and Oliver is married (no kids) and suddenly appears out of nowhere. Elio is not happy about it, which is the understatement of the century.

    This is an AU of sorts to my previous series. You don't need to have read it to enjoy this story, but some references will be lost.
    The characters I created are present here too (Jack, Pierre, etc).

    This London will be grittier and less soft-lensed, because Elio is virtually penniless and determined to refuse financial help from his parents.

    I promise a happy ending, but the course of true love will not run smooth...
